Spotlight on Our Sponsors: Win a Bumper Box of Cheese from NEMi!

Here at the International Cheese Awards, we’re lucky enough to have a whole range of amazing sponsors, and this month we’re taking a closer look at a really interesting brand that promotes and naturally enhances the nutritional value of dairy produce. Read on to find out more about NEMi, and how you can win a huge box of their brand new cheese in our September competition.

Naturally Enriched Milk Innovations

Dairy products are full of naturally occurring goodness – milk contains up to 16 nutrients essential for health, including calcium, two types of protein, potassium and vitamin B-12. However, NEMi has gone one step further, adding extra benefits to our milk by ensuring the very healthiest of cows: NEMi stands for Naturally Enriched Milk innovations, with their milk naturally enriched by the addition of organic yeast Selenium to their cows’ diets. British soil is deficient in Selenium, which the cows need for an optimum immune system, so this addition means happier, healthier cows who pass the benefits of this essential antioxidant on to us, the consumers. Great news for those of us who are addicted to dairy produce!

Even better, NEMi is a small, family-run business whose ethos is to support our farmers – they refuse to sell in supermarkets and have pledged to always pay the farmers who supply them well above the costs of production. Most British dairy farmers lose money on a daily basis, so it’s refreshing to find a company actively supporting the industry in an ethical manner and which in turn allows us to show our appreciation for British farmers. It was a pleasure to meet them all at this year’s Cheese Awards, and I can confirm that the milk is delicious! They’ve recently expanded their range by teaming up with expert cheese makers Butler’s to produce a beautiful new medium-matured Lancashire cheese with all the same health benefits as their milk range. For more details and for a list of stockists, take a look at their website (http://www.nemi-dairy.co.uk/).
